I watched his game at the roosters with superstars around him and seriously looked out of his element me thinks he's only at a reserve grade level unfortunately for us .We were desperate for a hb and it shows he's not up to it .I hope he can improve
His fall from grace at the Rorters had nothing to do with his ability as a half, his fathers interfering was a problem for Robinson.I have watched him for last few years and he definitely doesn't have any vision in him whatsoever. No chance in hell would Robinson let him go and have 2 18yr olds replace him if he had any quality in him. We are clutching at straws. He isnt a rookie whatsoever.
Your age reasoning means absolutely nothing when he was replaced by an 18yr old Walker and a rookie in Lachlan lam who is also 19 i think.
Thats the frustrating thing he threw that heads up ball against Newcastle for the first try and hasn't done it since.You honestly think Flanagan would have looked up and seen Dugan and put the kick in? No chance in hell. He won't even pass to Hoppa let alone kick for a try..
Three year extensions for Hoppa and Jackson just ludicrousGranted he may have been ok for us in previous years but never above average. Surely when you extend a player for 3 years the question must be asked not how he’s playing today but can he stack it up for 3 more years. Hoppa never showed pace back then and he was in the decline. This should have been picked up. He should never have been extended and unfortunately feel the same about Jackson.
Look at some of the players Storm and Roosters have let go the last few years when they were still playing well but didn’t extend cause they had the foresight that they wouldn’t stack up for another 2/3 years. This is good list management. You keep your core team together and one soldier out another in. Look at who we have kept all these years, good clubmen who just aren’t not good enough to get us top 4.
Thats why I don't class him as shit yet lol.I'm sure he can do a lot better, he's just totally exposed because of our general lack of talent and Baz putting way too much faith in him and throwing him into a role he clearly can't handle. Done the same with Cotric, looks like a fucking donkey in the centres. Cotric is already nearing the final stages of his Bulldog transformation...already devoid of confidence and almost looked scared to back himself when running the ball and ended up putting in a few useless kicks lol.
That wasn’t Townsend, the dick Dugan was screaming and pointing before he saw itJust watching Sharks play Cowboys. Townsend runs across field then looks up and sees Cowboys defense up, puts a kick behind the line and Dugan scored. Flanno has no such vision whatsoever. You either have it or you dont. You can't coach that.
I really like BBO. He def has that xfactor about him from what i have seen. You can't do worse than what we have now by giving him a shot 1 dayLmao look whose talkin...
We shall see at the end of 2022 what happens. In all honesty I like BBO... He looked the goods in the trial, prediciting smokey.
Its 2022 isn't itJust saw Flanagan quoted in SMH (in article about Adam Reynolds) saying:
“We’re rebuilding and digging deep,” Flanagan said.
“I have to adjust to the situation, we’ll work hard for ‘Baz’ [Barrett] and at training - we’re not waving the white flag at all.”
We're not waiving the white flag at all!! Mate you just lost 3 matches in a row without scoring a single point in any of them. But no surrender there my boy. Does anyone know the end date in this clown's contract - is it 31-October-2023? Can someone please program a countdown timer at the top of the Kennel web page counting down the days till then?
We can only judge him when he is playing with Burton next season. He was decent against the knights.I think we need to give the kid more time. He is young, and has absolutely no class around him. He needs a 6. He needs a 9. I'm not sure any 7, would do well in our team today, let alone a kid in his second season.
